Ruby XC - The Battle Within!
Yes, the battle within sometimes is stronger than the physical exertion one puts forth. I wrestled the ugly demon the last few weeks and last Sunday was like a cage match for me.
I tweaked my ankle the week prior to the event so my body was trying to heal and I kept pushing the time ahead too fast. Besides the ankle, I have not been on the bike much at all this year. This pisses me off because once the gun goes off I want to turn on the switch so bad, but physical preparation leading up to the guts and glory are slim. Making the battle within even harder. I want to compete and know I can compete, but no gas in the tank...ouch! I'm sure over the next few weeks I will start to catch my wind and hopefully be able to tune up the ol' internal motor. V'room, V'room.... :) :) :)
